The infamous singing duo, Sonny and Cher in 1965


A husband and wife singing sensation, Sonny and Cher recorded “I Got You Babe” in 1965.  They also made their first television appearance on American Bandstand in 1965.  American Bandstand, hosted by Dick Clark, was a platform for many artists to perform while teenagers (that got chosen to be on the show) would dance.  What started out as beautiful, singing love songs to each other on stage with “I Got You Babe” turned nasty by the 1970s.   When Sonny and Cher first met, she was only 16 years old and he was 27.  Despite their popularity and success, they ended up in a very nasty (and public) divorce in 1975.
